Pinkbike Poll - How Many Days Did You Ride in 2016?

Dec 12, 2016 at 9:45
by Mike Levy  
Well, that's nearly it; 2016 is pretty much behind us. Given how some things went down this year, I suspect that a lot of people will be okay with it not dragging on any longer than it needs to. Deaths, politics, and controversies aside, there were one hundred and four Saturdays and Sundays squeezed into the last twelve months, which is plenty of time for most people to do something other than work. Or maybe you're lucky enough not to have to wait for those precious few days off in order to get on the trails, which is even better. More is usually better when it comes to riding, isn't it?

Getting 100 days on the bike, all on dirt, is a mere fantasy for some riders, while others can smash that out well before summer even arrives. Some lucky bastards can blast well past that, and even fewer somehow manage to dip into the rarified 300 zone, which sounds impossible but clearly isn't for a few hearty souls who apparently have fewer responsibilities than others. Or maybe you're more than happy to be getting out fifty, twenty, or even just a dozen times per year. It might come as a surprise to some of us, but there are probably many people out there who don't really want to ride much more than they did this year.

How many days did you ride in 2016?

Let's say that you had to be on dirt for it to count, even if it was a just short spin. So, let's see an estimate of how many days you rode in 2016.

 @bishopsmike: due to my invaluable experience with arguing with people on various topics I can advise you to not get into deeper arguments about having kids and riding time deficit. Sooner or later some hardcore older dude (who currently doesn't have small kids) will show up and tell you to pussy down and harden the fk up.

 @tremeer023: My commute is actually really short if I take the most direct route; 2 miles. I almost always take the least direct route and add distance, elevation, trails, etc. to make it more fun and interesting and inspirational. I commute on a Chromoly CX bike with knobbed tires.

 @Zhehan: I used to ride a CX bike. Since 1,5 year I ride on a small 26" hardtail with 2,5" slicks. It allowed me to learn to wheelie, stoppie and manuals. I also practice cornering.

 @listeryu: the Happyride name says it all. Then biggest chainring from tripple chainset in the logo clears any doubts. And for me this is the evidence against what most people say about Pinkbike, who think here you get stupid gravity kids and that's why it sucks. No. It's much worse on forums like happy where all sorts of people of all kinds of riding meet and all sorts of sht goes down. But it is just not as visible as on Pinkbike because it's not an easily accessible comment section under main articles. Some idiots here had something agaist "29ers are gay" expression. Well on sites like happy you can see an actual homophobia, sexism and racism in the comments. Not often but it happens. The amount of off-tooic sht going in there is amazing and people here on Pinkbike get mad immediately, everytime Trump or religion comes up. If you open a 4 page long forum thread with the most down to Earth title like "how to bleed Shimano Brakes" you will not believe what you will see in the last 5 posts. Then if you'd like to find out why someone talks about some sht in Teheran under thread about brakes, it will take you at least 2 hours to read each single preceding post, and in the end you may not understand why it turned out this way.

I will never forget when I started an angry thread about people fkng up one of the best trails in the area by making French lines for Strava and by organizing frequent massive group rides on it. The amount and diversity of sht that got relesead was unbelievable. One guy thought there's nothing wrong with it - fine. Another one didn't understand why would anyone ride there at all -fine, but then the worst of cave trolls started coming out for a feast. A dude who said that he is free to do whatever he wants, where he wants and if he wishes to cut a tree he has a right to do it (he argued his stance for at least 20 posts. Then another dude said we should not use tyres with big knobbs because we destroy the forest. Hundreds of posts quoting and interpreting different paragraphs of law ensued. Then someone said there were branches across the trail and asked if it was me putting them as a form of revenge. Fine, but some of regular trolls said that there is nothing bad with trail sabotage because branches across the trail are a natural occurrence in the forest and it should motivate you to learn to bunnyhop and since he can't bunnyhop (!) he has no problem with getting off the bike and getting on it again because he did a bit of CX few years ago. You just go Whaaaat thaaaaa faaaaaaaaack.

So I honestly do think that Pinkbike gets lots of undeserved sht, only because the comment boards are so easy to see. The sht that goes on big national sites is waaaaay worse. But it is hidden and you need to do at least a bit of digging to find it.
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: wow, I was not aware of that - I will dig around mtb-news and see if there is some similar sht going on. I would not be surprised at all - to be honest.
  • + 1
 @listeryu: it's rare and never escalating with actual discriminatory sht, people usually gang up on the troll(s) and shut him down but it's worse than on Pinkbike comment section. I'm sure it's worse on Polish sites. However nothing beats Facebook. Especially some local, bottom feeding FB bike sites living off resharing content of others. The sht that goes down there can be amazing. Latest stupid election in Poland woke up lots of trolls and made them feel free to toss crap. I unfolowed most of Polish "Facebook friends" because I couldn't read it anymore. The funniest bit is that you get real racist crap there on Pinkbike people are losing their sht over 29ers are gay or Mike Levy saying that the bike X behaves like a girl after a few shots, who will do anything you like. Then a couple of sites just feast over it, pointing fingers and moralizing.

The desparity between actual a-holism and oversensitivity is preposterous. In one way you are not allowed to use word "gay" but then it is perfectly fine to throw the most horrific sht at E-bikes and people supposedly riding them. People just love being a part of the team and showcase their moral superiority over others.

Fk them.

 @WAKIdesigns: I agree 100% - after having to watch the presidents campaign in Austria for what felt like forever I can more than understand what you write about. There was a polarization and if anybode said he was voting for A he was cornered to by B voters for voting A. I am so sick of intolerate people and I am not always happy nor do I agree with what people think (politics and cycling ;-) ), but hey I do not have to vote like that nor do I have to buy the stuff I think I don´t need. If others want to vote/buy I am more than okay with it.

It is rather interesting that in the course of the presidents campaign no idividual "friend" of mine stood up and told me why he/she want´s to vote what he/she want´s to vote. It was always a matter of teaming up (all these stupid facebook groups) and brag via that channel. There are even groups telling fake news to gain "importance" via social media.

 Wow. Just, HOW ?!?

I like to count my rides, and this season I rode 72 times. Bear with me here, I count for "one ride" a full day in the park as much as an hour ride in the evening after work.

So, how do you ride more than a hundred times a year with a 40 hours/week job ??? It always great weather where you live ? It never pour rain ? There's no winter ? You still ride even if it's -40 C, during a snow storm and an earthquake ?

I thought I was disciplined and motivated for riding as much as possible, until I saw this poll.

Helmet's off to all those who top the hundred+ rides. I envy you. Also, f*ck you.

 I live in the pnw, work 40 hour work week, no kids.I live within 15 minutes of five different ridding areas, there is no commuter traffic to get stuck in. Some trails I ride from my house. I live in a rainshadown, so rarely ride in the rain. Plus I travel for races, during race season, therefore ride other locations. Most of my ridding is after workdays March through October. In the dead of winter, I build trails and other fun stuff. Normal weekday rides are 10- 15 miles with 3000' or more of climbing. Once a week, I do get a longer 40 mile xc ride in though. I don't mow my lawn.

 Riding both Saturday and Sunday every weekend no matter what will get you 104 rides a year. You can then add after-work rides to make up for any down time. Like if you can only get out in the summer, then ride every day after work for a few months. So it's not the math, the weather, or even the job as much as it is balancing riding with other commitments in your life. I don't ride every day in the summer because sometimes I just want to hang out with friends and family and pets. Long as you're happy the numbers don't matter that much...

 I live in California so there isn't really any harsh weather here. I work over 50 hours a week. During winter when the days are short, still dark before I work and dark when I'm off work, I'll ride during my lunch. I look forward to rainy days so I can play in the mud. It's been a drought here so rain is a bonus for me. I ride a minimum of 3 days a week, as much as 6 days in the summer, sometimes twice a day.

 I got 130 this year.. I have 2 jobs, 2 kids, wife -- but granted my kids are older (12 and 15) and I live in Golden, CO where the weather is darn good. I was riding dirt last week (snowy now), and rode on dirt in every month of 2016. I live where I can ride from my house, I think that is the key for me. I also live a mile from work so that I don't waste time commuting.

 I live a 30 min subway ride away from the nearest mountain. I try to get 3 - 4 multi hour rides in a week during the 7 month season. On top of that I travel with my bike and ride almost nonstop for weeks.

 I commute to work , sometimes on my XC. coming back home i like to ride a local trail, do this at least three times a week ...on weekends i prefer to go to more distant trails and try different stuff to improve my skills. so i ride at least 4 times a week and still think i am a lazy ass. i could do more but there are the recovery days from working out twice a week. oh yeah, winter here is a delicious cold breeze comparing to other places. i don't count the days but it is possible to ride a lot in one year.

 Moved to North Vancouver. Trails 5 minutes away, and unless it's this fall/winter, hardly any snow. Super affordable, ultra bright lights for after work rips once the daylight savings takes place.Then when I want a break from my "usual routine", there's the rest of the Sea to Sky corridor on the weekends.

Truly lucky. I don't pretend otherwise.

- In the summer ride both days on weekends plus 1 or two days after work each week.
- In the winter ride 2 days each week - between weekend and after work night rides.
- Take 3-4 weeks vacation and ride almost each day of that period.
- I work 25kms from home and no shower at work so my commuting days are not great, but I still rocked ~15days riding there.

 I work on Project so I'm away from Monday to Friday and only ride at the weekends. Have a wife and 2 kids. 52 Weekends will give me 104 rides - rain, hail or snow ;-) - if I'm working out of HomeOffice I'll always ride for an hour in the evening , even in the winter and with lights. I run marathons too ;-) . It's hard to motivate yourself sometimes but because I have limited time I try to use it to the max. Got me out 121 times so far this year and still counting
  • + 3
 I have over 250 rides not counting rainy days at the gym on the stationary. Ride all Winter in the snow and almost every day after work on local trails for 1+hr. I have a full-time job 45+hrs a week (and an understanding wife). Weekends can get a little more adventurous and travel 1+hr for some 2-3hr rides. Some people go to the gym 6 days a week, I ride. I don't think I've had dinner before 7:00PM more than 5 times all year though.
  • + 2
 I work 4 longer days to get my 39hrs in every week so that leaves 3 days a week to ride. I try and have 1 rest day most weeks so that's 2 days a week riding dirt. I also commute by bike every working day and can extend the ride home to include a few dirt trails if I have time, usually in the summer. Add in any holiday time is usually spent with a few days riding somewhere and it all adds up! Does help that I don't have any kids so any free time is riding time. Managed 176 days this year despite losing a month after getting doored commuting to work, not bad really.
  • + 5
 I work full time, have two teenagers, snowboard 35+ days per year, and did about 35 hotel nights this year traveling for work. I did 190 days of riding, including 10 bike park days. I don't count 9 days on the road bike - that isn't really riding IMHO.

Everyday I am home and trail conditions warrant I am out riding my bike early in the morning. It's a great way to start the day and I ride with the same crew all the time to keep it fun.

Riding is a blast and I can't imagine not doing it.
  • + 3
 Commuting to and from work is key. My ride to work is only 7.5 miles and I am lucky enough that I can hit trails a couple different ways. Would I love to get in longer rides on nothing but singletrack? YES!!! Reality is that with kids, work, house stuff, life in general that fitting in a ride becomes a constant moving target.

 I don't count, so I'm not sure, but normally get 3 rides a week in. 2 after work, and one on the weekends, pretty much all of daylight savings allows this. Then winter.... I'm lucky (somewhat planned) to live where it's possible to ride in the winter if you have the light. Although I must admit the good trails are almost done until springtime. There are trails to ride just to ride.

 I work 40hrs a week and aim to cycle min 50 miles a week. Working 7:30 to 15:30 each day, it's easy and I've done 175 rides according to my strava a/c. They range from a min 9 mile ride up the local canal to a 3-4hr ride in the forest.

However, my job has has changed now and I'm in the office rather than on the job and work up to 17:00, with an hour drive after that. So in the last 3 months I have struggled to hit my 50 mile a week, and currently averaging 42 miles and only two rides a week. Next year is going to be hard and I think I'll be lucky to do 100 rides over the year.

Happy Christmas to you all!

 When adjusting for the park days (since I track each descent at the park on strava separately) I had ~120 or so this year. I try and get out a couple times during the week before or after work, and at least once on the weekend.

I also live in San Diego where the weather doesn't really impact my riding schedule except maybe a few times around this time of year, and only because the trails need to dry out post-rain. I am also married, mid20s, a good job, and no kids so time to ride abounds!

 3 small kids, wife, full time job, SW Colorado. 100 rides this year. There are trails everywhere. You don't need to drive anywhere to get to great dirt, so all you need is an hour to rip it up. Living near trails is so helpful. I'd go insane if I rode any less!

 @forrestvt: truer words never spoken. Dog is by far a huge winter motivator and riding friend. When it's raining 0.89 inches an hour in the coast range and you've lost your toes and thumbs to wet windchill, the pup just swims across the icy drainage just to check out some cougar scat. Totally warms you up seeing that dripping, frothing mouth dog. Always good to see pure dedication in any creature....even for the relentless quest to eat cat shit.

 I work from home with trails right out the front door. I'll take an hour ride during the day whenever possible, which tends to be about every other day. Evening rides when the kids are in bed and and every Sunday morning after trail build. Weather was really good for riding this past year with pretty much no snow this past winter, although these last couple of weeks have shut down some with the cold and snow (that being said I did get out this morning). Also bought a CX bike last year, which is great when trials are too wet to ride but the crushed stone trails are fine (there is lots of maintained crush stone trails around here) and it allows mixing in a bit of road - good for winter and spring riding, plus really good for the fitness.

 I rode on 245 days this year, clocked 5,100km so far. No type of weather stops me, ever (it doesn't snow much here), and my job allows me to ride during the day so winter isn't a problem. Also I live in a forest, so amazing riding on my doorstep. Very, very lucky I know!!!

 You ride to/from your workplace/school/university and also I live in a place where I can go to some excellent trails that are 15-45 min by bike or 5-30 minutes by car.
In winter, when it get dark early, I go out with a light.
The only real off days are after it rains, because the mud sticks to the bike and makes it un-drivable and the trails get destroyed.

 I work 15 mins away from home and a 20 mins ride to the local trails, I was out of the saddle for about 5 months in total this year for different reasons and still was able to get almost 60 rides, even though my goal was 100. I'll be moving to another country next year so probably no riding for a good time. dang I'm gonna miss it...

 Live in Wellington, New Zealand. Decent trails in the city and a number of parks just a few kms further. No snow, a few windy and rainy days and an earthquake just means a day off while they inspect buildings, trains and roads. Even if you can't include a ride on your commute in or out to work there's plenty of good lunchtime riding.

 Weather is good here.. but it is pretty easy. Just need to wake up early so it doesn't impact your whole day/work/family. Here is the formula Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday.... repeat. If you live somewhere you can ride 9 months a year.. that is 140+ rides.. if you can ride 12 months you hit 200.

A lot of my rides start at 6am though.. either to get it in before work or so I can still have plenty of family time on the weekend and my before work rides are usually only 45-60 minutes or else I need a nap..lol

The Shore is only affordable depending on household income and what the members of that household value as important for happiness. Definitely not the "cheapest" place to live.

 How to ride your bike 100+ days per year:
1. Don't get married.
2. Don't get a girlfriend.

 2 jobs, 2 kids, Wife -- I rode 130 days on Dirt! The key is living near trails. If I have an hour, I ride.. My son rides with me sometimes (he is 12), my wife rides with me at least once a week.

It's not that hard because it's close. If it was a longer drive (over 30-45 minutes) I wouldn't ride much.
Tomorrow will be ride 150 for the year, probably 140th on the dirt.

 I had a cat 4 knee dislocation in March this year in a really shitty two wheel slide out.
When I got to hospital, the doctors said I wouldn't get back on the bike this year.
They said I'd be lucky to walk properly before Christmas.
Then they sent me to Oxford university hospitals top knee surgeon. He was amazing, and through some miracle I ended up not requiring major surgery.
(When I relocated my knee on the trailside I somehow managed to get all the ligaments to sit in the right place to be able to reconnect with the bone)
Within weeks I was walking, and got back in the saddle at the end of June.
I'm never going to be able to ride like I used to, but my love for the ride is just the same as it always was!
I managed just over 100 rides this year despite the injury, and I'm gonna smash the hell out of that next year!
Healing vibes to all our broken brothers, may you all heal well and not get fat this Christmas!

 Between DH/XC I have like 35 this year. I like to count them because after like 7 rides I always feel like I've done 30% more riding than I actually did for some reason so the excel table keeps my overenthusiastic brain in check.

Like bragelonne said, keeping log of the ride times helps keeping tabs on suspension maintenance. It also helps figuring how much total rides you've done with a particular bike and if buying a new one makes sense financially.

I guess I just like that kind of data.

 I think that people are either fooling themselves, unemployed, or don't get winter to ride 150 days a year. I lived at the resort but due to a full time job(at a bike shop) I only logged 30 days of lift access riding (out of a possible 70 days they were even open) that was every day off, Sunday, and extended play day. I logged it on a whiteboard as I put my bike away coming off hill. You might think you ride every other day, but with weather, winter, employment, adulthood, etc that gets really difficult.

To everyone that "rode 150 days" how many times did you service your suspension? Let's just say that the recommended interval is 50 hours. You ride 2.5 hours every other day, your suspension should be serviced every 40 days. That's almost 10 times a year.

My ride schedule was xc Tues after work, bike Park weds after work, bike Park all day Thursday, bike Park Fri after work, Saturday xc after work, bike Park all day Sunday. Come Monday my bike NEEDED a major service, I usually did a minor service Friday or Saturday as well. That being said, for the hours on my bike it is in excellent shape. If you legitimately ride 150 times a year and aren't doing major services at least every week, your bike would be ruined by the end of the season - it's basic math. Which I'm sure is how you came to the conclusion that you think you rode 150 days. Everyone that legitimately rode 150 days of mountain biking, not commuting on dirt, will second this because they were constantly servicing their bike.
  • + 2
 I had about 120 this year here in San Diego. I was at my service interval for hours on my suspension in oct but the bike got stolen, so I now have a reset on that.

My rides during the week, before or after work, typically are and hour to hour and a half getting 7-11 miles in on some local trails. Usually I am racing the approaching start of work or sunset, so the rides are shorter.

Weekends I try and to a ride that is more 15+ miles (mileage definitely varying) one day and maybe a little bit shorter ride the next day (Sunday).

I would guess that much bike park riding is really tough on the suspension while folks like me hitting local trails may be less tough on the suspension in general.

 Yea I don't know how 250 plus is possible with a real job haha. I work 45 hours a week....but I live in an apartment, no kids, near trails. I rode over 150 days according to my Strava and then adding my dh days. But I am always behind on laundry and personal tasks, and spend a good bit of time in the doghouse with my gf for riding too much lol. I have a few bikes and I spend a lot of time servicing them, over 25 of those days were on my DH bike so that helps also sometimes a ride may only be an hour long. However I burn through things like tires, brake pads, chains ect.
  • + 1
 I rode every wednesday night and sunday morning weather permitting. Fatbike season i generally ride only on sunday mornings. So far this year I'm at 115 rides at 1200ish miles. I could have easily done more than that. I work 50hr work weeks and have a 2 year old and a 5 year old as well. Part of it is having an understanding wife that lets me ride.

I did a lower leg service on my pike in november (should have been done in july) and started the season on a fresh aircan service. My monarch plus needs another aircan service as I'm loosing 20ish psi over 20 mile rides.

I rebuild my bluto at the end of every snow season.

You can stick to factory intervals, but in my experience they're pretty conservative.

 I ride to work every day all year round through my local woods using singletrack, its not a massive ride but its about 5 miles each way, I then ride one day every weekend that my wife doesn't work (she's self employed and only works weekends in the couple of months before Christmas. According to strava I rode 599 times so far this year and covered 4988 miles. I service my own suspension every 2 months but I ride a hardtail so I don't need to worry about a rear shock. I'm not writing the to be argumentative, I'm just letting you know that some of us really do ride over 150 days a year and still know how to look after a bike.
  • + 2
 hmmm I'm definitely not fooling myself since they were recorded on Strava. I have a 50/hour per week Monday to Friday job + I work part time in the summer at the LBS as a wrench and yet somehow I got in 95 (2 hour average) recorded trail and endless nights on the dirt jumper.

My suspension is also still performing considering it hasn't been serviced since last winter. I'm guessing that's because I don't live at a bike park like you do so it doesn't see the heavy vibrations from high speed decents as often as your bike does.

I ride every weekend even if I'm working at the bike shop. I get out at 5pm and ride till 9pm in the summer. On the weekdays I usually leave work at 4 or 430 go home, change clothes put the bike and my trail dog in the car and head for the trails that are 25 minutes away even in evening traffic. I live in the maritimes and we're lucky to have a riding season that starts in early April and finishes early December.

Just because it's not possible where you live doesn't mean it's not possible in other parts of the world.

Oh yeah and we can do it without killing a bike every other week.

 Had a goal of 100 rides, only hit 49. I counted 1 ride having to be at least 45 minutes on the bike on a trail or dedicated biking. Hoping on for 20 minutes to practice manuals or wheelies didn't count as a bike ride although some days that's all the time I had for. Next year I'm hitting 100!!

www.trailforks.com/profile/canadaka/ridelog

Plug for the Trailforks ridelog feature, it tracks your total days of riding. Different than Strava which tracks "rides" so if you are doing shuttle laps and submit multiple activities It can count multiple rides per day. Trailforks counts just unqiue days on the bike.

Also I track my road and commute bike on Strava, but I ONLY sync my Strava activities done with my mountain bikes to Trailforks, so I can separate them.

 I have a bumper sticker that reads: "When the trails are wet, the rivers are flowin'. When the rivers are dry, the trails I'm goin'." I'm also a white water kayaker - so for me it's usually between late April to early Dec to ride - then it's hockey if it's cold enough. Rivers take precedent, as they come up and down, but I average a solid 3 times a week, maybe 4 - so it's close to 100.
